Have you been building a wishlist? Don't forget that Xmas is just around the corner so it might come in handy for gifts for others, or even gifts for you (perhaps print it off and leave it for the family to find?)

Trailer/Caravan Security
Unfortunately, trends indicate that during holiday periods there is an increase in thefts, with boats, caravans and camper trailers being easy prey to anyone with a tow bar. Our range of CoupleMate Trailer Locks From $22.50 is an easy and cheap solution giving you that extra bit of security.


SAVE 15%

Also, our friends at Couplemate, have generously offered to give ANYONE who mentions this advertisement, a 15% discount on all trailer/camper parts until the 23rd December, 2004 (these items are not sold through ExplorOz, but are available direct through Couplemate and their Distributors Australia-wide).

To obtain more information on the product range and be advised of the Couplemate distributer nearest to you, please send email tomail@couplemate.com.au 

This is a wonderful offer, with Couplemate holding quality stocks of bearings, hubs, springs and more to suit all kinds of trailers, campers and caravans.

Pre-trip reading

Short Stay Guides
For anyone in the early stages of trip planning, the Short Stay Guides series are very useful to get a feel for what a region has to offer the visitor. Each book (there's one for each state) describes the main things to do in each part of the region with lists of major tourist attractions, opening hours, costs, contact details etc as well as accommodation listings. An ideal gift for any traveller from the hotel stayer to the camper.
